Developing Another Little Girl Portrait
19th Century Style

I am posting this to simply refresh your memory of the Style
Recently, while out shopping in an Antiques and Collectibles store, I picked up this little black frame pictured below. It was 8"x11 1/2" and had the antique glass to go with it. I thought about painting a ship for it but have done a good bit of NAUTICAL lately and so I thought due to the orientation of the frame (up and down), it would make a nice portrait. Honestly, I like the gnarly old wire, too. Don't be surprised if I figure out a way to use it! You know, one thing that is nice about repurposing things is that it doesn't end up in some landfill…smile.
|Perfect for a portrait!|
|The exaggeratedly small chair with table is what Folk Art is all about!|
It will be what makes this piece 'folky'
|Notice that I didn't take the time to draw in the fingers. I will need to do this before I proceed.|
